Bet on Cardiff to continue close pursuit of QPR

| 15.02.2011

Cardiff have won their last six home encounters with Burnley and there is no reason to suggest that this sequence will not be extended this season.

It is 5/6 in the Championship betting odds that Cardiff defeat Burnley and remain the nearest pursuers to QPR at the head of the table.

Cardiff are unbeaten in their last six Championship games, although Burnley have also been in good form thanks to three wins in their latest four fixtures.

Burnley’s betting odds are 10/3 to beat Cardiff and an improvement in their away form is certainly needed if they are to challenge to finish among the play-off places.

Watford have been on a disappointing run of late, collecting just one point from their last four games, but they should be able to return to winning ways at home to bottom club Preston.

Three straight defeats has led to Preston slipping ten points from safety and it is 4/6 that their survival hopes are further shattered by Watford.

Preston are 4/1 to secure victory, which would be just their second in the Championship in 17 league games.

Meanwhile, they have taken just two points from their last eight league outings.

Furthermore, just one of the last seven meetings between the pair have witnessed any more than two goals being scored and it is 21/20 that less than 2.5 goals are netted again.

After a nightmare run of seven straight defeats earlier in the season, Ipswich have remembered how to win games of late, ensuring maximum points in three of their last four games.

Meanwhile, Doncaster have lost five of their last six games, which makes Ipswich overpriced at 13/8 to leave the Keepmoat Stadium with a victory.

Doncaster’s home form has been far superior to that on their travels and therefore they also have a chance at 8/5.

A £25 stake on Cardiff beating Burnley 2-1 would return £175. New customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
